Applications for 2019 mini grants are now open!
Do you have an environmental or humanitarian project that needs a fuel injection?
How about making a veggie patch, creating a pollinator garden, addressing plastic waste, or supporting a social issue in your area? Roots & Shoots Australia invites you to apply for a mini grant of $250 or $500 to fund your own Roots & Shoots project! Submitted projects should be aligned with our mission of inspiring youth to create positive outcomes for animals, people or our shared environment.
We ask that you share your project milestones with us – take photos, draw pictures and write a few lines so that we can showcase your success and inspire others. What’s the catch? You need to be a Roots & Shoots member. It’s free and easy, sign up here! So getting planning!
Applications will close May 31st 2019, and winners notified by mid June, so that you can implement your project from Day 1, Term 3. Please download the application form and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
